SEE WHO'S AT THE DOOR BEFORE YOU HEAR THEM KNOCKING The combined power of ActiveHome Pro and iWitness is truly amazing. As someone approaches your home, a motion sensor signals your indoor chime alerting you of the visitor. Then, at the same time, your robotic camera moves to the front door view and live video appears on your computer screen. Before they even knock on the door, you know who it is!
Watch how a single camera mounted on a Ninja Pan & Tilt base can follow the action. When the first motion sensor detects movement, it starts iWitness' digital video recorder and tells the camera to move to a preset position. Then, the second motion sensor signals the camera to move again to follow the action.
But wait, it gets better! When you use the optional Smart Macros Software Module, if it's after dark, you can have ActiveHome Pro turn on your walkway and front porch lights, making it safer for your guests and providing light for your camera to see. When you're not home, you can have the video recorded to your hard drive and review it later. Rest assured, you won't miss a thing.
COMPLETE CAMERA CONTROL AT THE TIP OF YOUR FINGER Now, with just a click of your mouse, you can have complete control of every X10 camera in your home surveillance network. Peek in on your napping child without making a sound. Then, swith to your backyard view and make sure the hired help doesn't mow down your freshly planted orses. With iWitness, you'll be able to switch camera views with ease or jump to autopilot and scan them all.
You'll be able to Pan and Tilt the cameras you have mounted on Ninja Robotic Bases or target them at one of your preset locations- all with just one click. If you're luck enough to own a Vanguard Camera, you'll be able to control the powerful 44x Zoom too! Multi-Camera viewing with Pan/Tilt/Zoom Control all on one screen - Wow!
EASY TO SET UP. EASY TO USE. As you would expect from ActiveHome Pro, setting up your surveillance camera network is simple with the drag-and-drop interface. Just select the cameras you have and drag them into the room of your choice. You can then give your camera a name just like any other module.
When you view your cameras in live video mode, you can switch cameras using the convenient camera tabs or see them all. You'll also find the buttons to control your robotic cameras, digital recording and camera scanning right at your fingertips.
